Preparing Three-Cheese Spinach and Artichoke Dip

This dip is perfect for gatherings and can be whipped up quickly in an oven-safe skillet, such as a cast-iron, which is ideal for serving straight to table.

  1. Prepare Ingredients: Preheat your skillet, melt butter, then sauté the partially thawed spinach and chopped artichokes until tender.
  2. Combine Flavors: Add garlic followed by the cream cheese and sour cream, stirring until smoothly combined.
  3. Incorporate the Parmesan and half the mozzarella, seasoning with cayenne for a subtle kick.
  4. Bake to Perfection: After the dip has thickened on the stove, top it with the remaining mozzarella and broil until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown.

Storage Tips

This dip is best enjoyed fresh but can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days in a sealed container. It’s not suitable for freezing due to the texture changes in sour cream and cream cheese upon thawing.
